of numbers are you expecting this time around? >> it varies from city to city. in cincinnati where we've done it since 2008, we've had about -- oh, boy. we've had about 80 people sleep out overnight. then the next morning we had probably 200 people come out to vote in the morning. in columbus, it'll be a little bit different as there are about 200 ohio state university students who are going to be sleeping out overnight. toledo there are a lot of union workers. in cuyahoga county, there are going to be a great deal of students and other activists who will be there. in youngstown a lot of workers and union workers will be there. so it's a different mix in each city. but we're anticipating that this enthusiasm that everybody is showing will infect other people, other voters. they'll get out and vote and know as you mentioned that 30% of the people vote early. that's very important that people have the opportunity to vote early. particularly in ohio where there is a lot of confusion about when to vote early and things like that. >> but there are absentee ballots people can get at home, correct?
